I'm trying to eliminate unwanted chemicals from our diet. I don't like the things in the non-stick aerosol can that I usually use. It struck me the other day; make your own!
I had a tiny spray bottle I bought at Walmart for less than a dollar, I added my ingredients, very simple, and it worked great! One more healthy change and very little effort involved. It's even less expensive than the old kind.

Total Time: 10 minutes?

Yield: 2 ounces


  • small fingertip spray bottle
  • 1 ounce water
  • 1 ounce grapeseed oil
  • measuring cup
  • funnel
  • Supplies for Decorating the Spray Bottle
  • old magazine
  • scissors
  • tape
  • cookie cutter or stencil
  • paper bag
  • pen
  • twine


  1. Pour 1 ounce of water into your bottle with a funnel.
  2. Pour 1 ounce of grapeseed, extra virgin olive oil, or any all natural healthy oil. Non-hydrogenated is very important.
  3. Shake well.
  4. Cut a label from an old magazine and tape onto the front of your bottle.
  5. Cut a label with a cookie cutter or stencil from a grocery bag for your label.
  6. Label it and tape on.
  7. Tie with some twine and you're good to go.
  8. You don't have to do this, but I find cooking more enjoyable when the items I use are dressed up a bit.:)

This is a great cooking spray with no additives. Store it in a cool dark place.

In search of ways to save money, I have run across liquid lecithin. This is good for making non-stick cooking spray by combining half liquid lecithin and half grape seed oil and flavoring with imitation butter, to taste.

Ever notice how cans of cooking oil sprays end up empty so quickly? They are costly for how much actual oil they have in them.


They also have quite a few additives. You can make your own at home two ways.

To make your own nonstick spray, combine equal parts of vegetable oil & liquid lecithin in a pump bottle. Liquid lecithin can be found in natural food stores.
